Have you ever volunteered with your child?

My daughter is in Girl Scouts and recently went to Feed My Starving Children where they packed food for families in need. Since she is only eight, a guardian needed to be present for each child. So my husband went with her. He said it was so rewarding for both of them. I have volunteered myself several times, but not with my kids. So I was wondering if others have volunteered with kids before. And if so, how was the experience?

    I think this is so important, and I have been looking for opportunities to do this... grateful for the Upparent lists that make finding volunteer opportunities easy!

      Agree! I have never volunteered with the kids, but would love to. I love the Upparent volunteer list in my market.

    I can't wait to walk puppies at the SPCA with my daughter when she is old enough! So many things I"m itching to do when she gets older :)

    We need to volunteer more often, but every year we volunteer on MILK Day of Service in January. There is a church we go that has volunteer activities for kids such as T-shirt decorating, card making and assembling packets for different kids and families who are in need. My kids love it and we leave with a warm fuzzy feeling of having helped others. But we definitely need to volunteer more often.

    I would love to volunteer with my kids, but it seems like too much "work" with a four-year-old, I'm not sure how helpful I'd be with my kiddos along.
